OntoSim is a Java API allowing to compute similarities between ontologies. It provides a framework for designing various kinds of similarities. In particular, we differentiated similarities in the ontology space from those in the alignment space. The latter ones make use of available alignments in a network of ontologies while the former only rely on ontology data.

OntoSim is based on an ontology interface, shared with the Alignment API Ontowrap package allowing for using ontology parsed with different API (JENA or OWL API).
